. . . i ❤ faces (from a distance)

on april 30, 2011, riddled with cancer, my father took his last breath as he passed from this world into heaven.  this picture was taken less than 10 months ago and is the last time our boys were able to play and be rambunctious with their papa.  although i miss him and still feel like he is "hiding" somewhere, i will always treasure pictures like this that remind me what a vibrant, loving, fun, happy and a truly wonderful man (i could go on. . . and on) he was on this earth.  i am so blessed to have had him as a father and that my children were able to have this precious time with him.  
the rate at which the cancer overtook my daddy's flesh is astounding . . . take pictures, take LOTS of pictures, you just never know what could happen and that moment you just captured, with that one little click of your camera, can never be relived, never.

  1. Absolutely beautiful picture but the story behind the picture is what makes it magnificant. Yes, I had no idea that the one picture my husband quickly snapped would be the last picture I had with my father while he was still looking like himself before the effects of chemo and radiation. Thank you for sharing. ~ Wendy from Choosing Love (Having trouble posting as myself and could only post as anonymous)

  2. So sorry about your loss, yet so glad you were able to capture this very precious moment.
